About the Author:

MARY MCCARTHY (1912-1989) was a short-story writer, bestselling novelist, essayist, and critic. She was the author of The Stones of Florence and Birds of America, among other books.

From Library Journal:

For three decades, Mary McCarthy (1912-89), the American novelist and literary critic, and Hannah Arendt (1906-75), the German-born American philosopher and political scientist, shared a rare and enviable friendship that spanned the continents. Their long correspondence is fascinating in its revelation of two very different personalities and their views on notable political, philosophical, and literary figures and events of the day, such as Karl Jaspers, Robert Lowell, the Vietnam War, the trial of Adolf Eichmann, Richard Nixon, and Watergate. The two intellectuals share professional and personal concerns and critique each other's works. The collection is uneven, with more letters from McCarthy than Arendt. Contextual notes are placed at the beginning of the correspondence or at the end, with the exception of explanatory terms found in brackets within the letters, a practice that is both helpful and distracting. For all interested readers.
